Eternal Sonata (xbox 360)
It could only originate in Japan, Chopin (yes the famous composer) lying on his deathbed enters a dream world, where he possesses the gift of magic. In this land, however, magic is the side effect of a terrible and fatal disease. Those who can wield magic are shunned and feared so they tend to keep their powers a secret.
Now it so happens that in this dream world inside Chopin's head, lives an evil count (thank heavens for spellchecks), who has been oppressing the people with extreme taxes that are creating quite a bit of poverty and unrest This is when Chopin enters to save the day.
30+ hours of RPG heaven it appears, with the title at number 2 in the Japanese game charts. Due US and Europe September 2007 for Xbox 360, aka Trusty Bell: Chopin's Dream, Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume
